The Divorce and Beyond Podcast with Susan Guthrie, Esq.

Nationally recognized family law attorney, mediator and award-winning podcaster, Susan Guthrie is at it again! After guiding countless numbers of people through the perilous world of divorce—and speaking to a podcast audience of over 2.5 million listeners—she’s bringing you the “The Divorce and Beyond Podcast” to help you thrive in your life BEYOND divorce!

November is Military Family Appreciation Month and in this week's episode Susan Guthrie speaks with Kristina Kaiser, who shares her insights into the challenges faced by the families of our military members, as well as some of the difficulties that can arise when facing divorce within a military family.

We often remember to honor those who serve, and rightly so, but the family members, especially the spouses of our active military members also make sacrafices in the name of our country and deserve our thanks as well.  In honor of Military Family Appreciation Month, Kristina Kaiser, herself the former wife for almost 30 years of a Marine officer, gives an insider view into the many ways that our military families give of themselves, often to their detriment, while a family member is in active service.  Facing many moves and relocations, job limitations, unpaid volunteer work expectancies, co-parenting alone and more, the spouses and children of military personnel also can be affected by the military life.  Beyond that, divorce can be extra complicated when an active or former member of the military is involved.  The pensions, benefits and more that are one of the highlights of military careers are limited in some ways in being divided during the divorce process and the non-military spouse may end up receiving less than the might have if they were not dealing with military benefits.  Whether you are a member of the military, a military family member or one of those who owe themour thanks, this episode is a wonderful reminder of all they sacrifice for their country and why those thanks are deserved!

IMPORTANT NOTE:  This episode is meant to honor our military families and to give a glimpse of the hardships and sacrifices that they make for out country.  We mention some of the issues that can arise in a military divorce but if you are divorcing and military benefits are at issue, it is strongly advised that you seek counsel from an attorney in your area who is well-versed in military benefit in divorce.

Dr. Elizabeth Cohen, a/k/a The Divorce Doctor returns to the podcast for the third in the blockbuster series of episodes focused on mental health, divorce and trauma.  In this episode, Susan Guthrie and Dr. Elizabeth delve into the culture of toxic masculinity that has been pervasive over centuries in our world and explain the untold cost of these societal mores on men AND women and how we all can begin to change the paradigm.

“Man up.”  “Be a man.”  “Shake it off, there’s nothing to cry about.”  We have all heard, and perhaps even said or thought these phrases ourselves.  They seem innocuous enough but when you delve into the culture of what it means to be a man, the huge cost, in emotional and physical health to men becomes clear.  That cost carries over into the lives of women as the men we love are unable to express their emotions and suffer the health challenges that stem from society’s unwillingness to allow men to be vulnerable.  This episode was inspired by an email from listener, Mark Whorle (THANK YOU MARK!), who wrote in asking for guidance in finding emotional support and resources for divorce that are geared toward men, or are gender neutral.  This outreach from Mark exemplifies the culture of toxic masculinity that impacts women as well as men.  Toxic masculinity feeds the patriarchy – it is a vicious cycle that we all need to break.

Dr. Elizabeth and Susan explore the myriad ways that toxic masculinity pervade our lives and how it is manifested during divorce as well as how we each can start to change the conversation.  Start here, listen and be a part of the change!

In this episode, Susan Guthrie speaks with psychotherapist, Cindy Rasicot, the author of the Best-Selling memoir, Finding Venerable Mother: A Daughter's Spiritual Quest to Thailand, about her journey of physical, emotional and spiritual healing through her nuturing relationship with a Thai Buddhist nun and mentor.  Cindy's years long journey involves many lessons that will resonate with those going through divorce or any tranformative change, as she navigates physcial injury and healing, loss and pain and even her own gray divorce.  Cindy's path to healing with the guidance of Venerable Dammananda Bhikkhuni reminds us all that a truly open heart is the door to faith, forgiveness and love.  For anyone and everyone on the human journey through life, this is an episode that will bring hope to all with a focus on:

  • Change and the feeling of loss that can accompany that change;
  • The propensity of the mind to dwell on loss causing us to experience that loss over and over again; and
  • The realization that nothing is permanent and that happiness is sometimes in how you look at things.

Much as Elizabeth Gilbert's, Eat, Pray, Love, captured the collective conscious and the search for love that is common to all, Cindy Rasicot's, Finding Venerable Mother: A Daughter's Spiritual Quest to Thailand, touches on what is human in us all.  Listen to the episode, read the book and find connection and hope.

More About This Week's Special GuestCindy Rasicot is a writer and retired psychotherapist.  Author of Finding Venerable Mother: A Daughter’s Spiritual Quest to Thailand, her book is a #1 best seller in spirituality on Amazon and an International Book Awards finalist.  

Finding_Venerable_Mother6wnqv.jpg

Cindy’s life has been a spiritual journey that took on new dimensions when she and her family moved to Bangkok, Thailand for three years. There, she met her spiritual teacher, Venerable Dhammananda Bhikkhuni, an encounter that opened her heart and changed her forever. This deepening relationship led to writing her debut memoir which chronicles her adventures along the spiritual path. She is currently writing her second book about her spiritual teacher.

In this episode, Susan Guthrie is joined by Leading Divorce Attorney and Best-Selling Author (and Susan's Work BFF!), Gabrielle Hartley, to talk about the BEST THING to happen to Divorce in ages:  Online Divorce Mediation.

With the advent of Covid, many court systems around the country (and the world) are effectively closed or operating only on an emergency basis, and in most cases, they don't consider your divorce an emergency!  This can affect divorcing couples in many ways; if they are thinking of divorce, they often can't file and even when they do, they can't get into court.  For ongoing cases, couples can't get court dates for hearings or trials so are on indefinite hold, and for those who are done but need help due to changes that have occured, as they have for so many during Covid with job loss and health issues, they also struggle to get a court date.  Even as some courts open for limited business, the backlog of cases that has been building for months, will take years, if not decades, to subside.  It's just one long, never-ending DIVORCE LIMBO!

So what is a couple to do?  One of the best (and only) options for many is online divorce mediation and it's a great option!  Both Susan and Gabrielle have been conducting mediations online with couples for years, long before Covid made the practice popular.  There are many reasons, beyond social distancing and safety, that make online mediation particularly well-suited for divorce cases.  This conversation between two of the top online divorce mediators in the country will enlighten you and show you how you can mediate online and move through your divorce and BEYOND!

Some MORE Highlights from the Episode:

  • Find out what the mediation process looks like online.
  • Hear why not having to sit in the same room with your spouse can be so helpful to the process.
  • Discover why online mediation is often even faster and easier than in-person mediation.
  • Learn about Gabrielle's innovative online mediation blitz, her Positive Divorce approach and how you can learn to be Better Apart with her book and program!

There are just so many benefits to mediating your divorce online, listen to this episode and get your life out of LIMBO!

For More Information on This Week's Special Guest:  Gabrielle Hartley Esq., is a leading divorce attorney, online mediator and creator of The Better Apart Method.  She's known for keeping 99% of her cases at the negotiation table and out of the courtroom. Her Book, Better Apart; The Radically Positive Way to Separate was given a glowing endorsement from Gwyneth Paltrow, and People Magazine.  Gabrielle is a sought after divorce expert in the media and has been quoted in the New York TImes, Psychology Today, Vice, Thrive Global, and Yoga Journal to name a few.  PLUS she's a regular guest on NBC talking about all things related to what Gabrielle terms, The Positive Divorce Movement.

In this episode, Parenting Expert, Christina McGhee returns to talk with Susan Guthrie about all of the things that parents need to consider in order to create a parenting plan that truly works for the children.  

So often when parents sit down to figure out the parenting plan they pull out a calendar and start carving up the time with the kids as if it were another commodity like the bank accounts and debts.  In fact, although the amount of time that children spend with each parent needs to be "equitable" it doesn't need to be 50/50.  In fact, 50/50 rarely actually does (or should) exist.  Find out what the most important considerations actually are for parents who are setting up a time-sharing plan with their children and what will make it successful for the kids.

LISTENER QUESTION:  Christina starts the episode by answering the following question from listener, Kim Cuizon about how conflict between parents affects the kids:  "How about when parents don't talk at all but at the same time there are no conflicts?  They're not close enough as friends but are civil during drop offs.  Will this kind of apathetic relationship have lasting effects on the kids?"  GREAT QUESTION AND A VERY COMMON PHENOMENA!  What to know the answer?  Listen in! 

(If you have a question for Christina, send and email to divorceandbeyondpod@gmail.com and you might hear your question answered on a future episode!)

Some MORE Highlights from the Episode:

  • How important is being fair in creating a successful parenting plan for kids?
  • What is the two-home concept and how can parents support it?
  • Learn how important it is properly message parenting time to your kids.
  • Discover why your parenting plan will likely change over time.
  • Hear why you should always follow up a verbal agreement with a quick text or email.

And much more so that you can find just the right plan FOR YOUR KIDS!

***SPECIAL SERIES OF EPISODES on DIVORCE AND PARENTING!  Susan is thrilled to have Christina McGhee returning monthly to touch on several of the hot topics in parenting and divorce!  We will be discussing how to co-parent with a high conflict ex, how to handle the holidays and MUCH MORE so stay tuned.  CHRISTINA WILL ALSO ANSWER MORE QUESTIONS SENT IN BY LISTENERS SO SEND AN EMAIL TO divorceandbeyodpod@gmail.com  or by DM to @divorceandbeyond on Instagram with your question and hear the answer on a future episode!***

For More Information on This Week's Special Guest:  Christina McGhee  is a speaker and divorce parenting expert who believes divorce doesn't have to equal devastation for families.

As a coach with 20+ years of experience, Christina is dedicated to providing parents with the tools and practical support they need to get it right for their kids.

Their wisdom, candor, and humor will give courage to other children, and encourage parents to make better choices as they move through divorce.
